Nana Addo not NPP or NDC president – Peter Amewu

Lands and Natural Resources Minister, John Peter Amewu says President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo is not president for supporters of the New Patriotic Party only, but all Ghanaians.

The minister recounted his visit with Member of Parliament for Hohoe, Dr. Bernice Adiku-Heloo to the office of President Akuffo Addo, a move he said made the president very happy.

“I visited the President’s office with the MP, Madam Heloo, and he was extremely happy and said because of the MP, he would even come to the programme you organised to honour me. Unfortunately, he couldn’t come so he delegated Dr. Bawumia to be there,” he said.

Speaking during the endorsement of President Akufo Addo’s nominee, Teddy Andrew Ofori for the position of Municipal Chief Executive for Hohoe, Mr. Amewu described the President as a development-oriented person whose commitment to the election of Metropolitan, Municipal and Distirct Chief Executives (MMDCEs) from 2018 will deepen Ghana’s democracy.

He said Hohoe Municipal Assembly is the highest decision-making body in the municipality, adding that respect be given to assembly members and the Presiding Member.

He said one of the reasons he has been made Minister for Lands and Natural Resources is because he hails from Hohoe, and called on all 44 assembly members to take advantage of his office to bring development to the municipality.

Mr. Teddy Ofori was endorsed by assembly members on his third attempt after failing on two occasions.

He polled 41 out of 44 valid votes cast, representing 93 percent.
